Producer Story:

After planting coffee nearly 20 years ago, farmers in the Xamtai district of Houaphan province had all but given up on their hope to sell coffee as a sustainable cash crop. Nestled in a very remote corner of northeastern Laos, villages saw season after season come and go without anyone knowing their coffee farms even existed. In 2015 however, after getting wind of some coffee farming villages in the region, Yuni Coffee Co. made some exploratory trips and found these 'forgotten coffee' farms. Since that time, Yuni Coffee Co. has established a permanent presence in the region bringing new confidence and hope to coffee farmers. New coffee crops are now being planted and coffee-growing communities are excited about what the future holds as their coffee hits the world market for the first time.

By promoting coffee cultivation for the specialty market, Yuni Coffee Co. strives to create sustainable income opportunities for farmers in rural areas through providing training, support, and market opportunities. In this way, families may thrive together by staying in their home village without the necessity of seeking urban employment. “Yuni” means ‘here’ in the Lao language, and we value healthy community growth and development for ALL members. Together, we are ‘here’ for good.
